I got many questions answered to myself. Like why in the second building got killed twice more people then in the building that was attacked first. Why authorities didn’t let people go? Why people been asked to go back in place? During every fire alarm people asked to leave the building and not to use the elevator. The first building was on fire and in the second building people was asked to stay in place and wait. It was records of people phone calls confirming that. This is ridicules. All lives in the second building could be saved. At least many. Elevator worked and all stairs was opened for 20 min between two planes. A lots of detail that people can explore and understand materials provided.
Empecably done with the families of those who were lost in this tragedy in mind. Loved hearing the different families sharing their loss. Really put the names to the faces impacted me the most. Alot of work of putting together the artifacts for the collection. Made an impact on me as well. To really see the destruction of the day. Watching the events on TV doesn't compare to seeing the museum Up close an personal
With the New York Explorer pass, we selected the 7 most important sights. Then I started planning the days. I got to know the subway and bus transportation in New York and planned where and how to go. Now I’m nearing the end and enjoying it more and more. I’ve been to the U.S. several times, but I’ve avoided big cities by far so far. However, I was in almost every National Park. I think we will enjoy that too.
I explored the 5th and part of the 4th floor. I spent about 2 hours exploring so I would go back to see more but wish I could reuse my ticket being that the cost was $25. This Museum is huge much bigger than I anticipated. Also I didn't use the Get Your Guide and I feel as though $25 should be lower especially if a Family is involved. I'm quite sure this Museum gets a lot of donations.... from the elite.
Very moving. Beautifully curated. Lots of information - too much to absorb. Lots and lots and lots of memorabilia, too much info about the building of the twin towers so you get a bit overloaded before you can get past the tragic event and then absorb anything by the time you get to the "why?" - the part about Al Quaeda. I would have liked to study that, but I was overloaded by then.
